Waterproofing a leaky basement perimeter
Water around the perimeter of a basement can be prevented with our waterproofing system.

Frequent severe thunderstorms have the capability to put stress on foundation and basement walls and other areas, leading to leaky basements and crawl spaces.

Signs of a basement water problem

  • Wet or damp basement floor or standing water
  • Leaking or damp basement walls or windows
  • Crystalline deposits on concrete surfaces
  • Musty odors, condensation, and humidity
  • Sump pump issues

Does your basement leak during heavy rain, or does it just feel humid or musty? No matter how big or small of a problem you think your home has, it’s always a good idea to call in a professional to assess the situation and prevent long-term complications, such as mold growth or structural decay. Wet, hazardous homes will be a thing of the past when you call in AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists to waterproof your basement!

Reliable solutions for foundation repair and concrete lifting and leveling

There are many potential causes of foundation trouble, but the most common always have something to do with the soil around your home – which you as a homeowner don’t have much control over. Certain types of soils are more porous than others, allowing for water absorption, soil expansion and shrinking, and foundation shifting or settlement. These foundation problems can present themselves in many ways around your home, but they all require a professional for dependable foundation repairs.

Foundation problem signs and symptoms

  • Cracks in floors and walls
  • Uneven, sloping, or sagging floors
  • Bowing walls
  • Sticking windows and doors
  • Tilting chimneys

AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists uses Foundation products to resolve all of the root causes of these symptoms. Foundation piering, wall anchors and braces, and crawl space support jacks are just some of the ways we will fix your home. If concrete slab settlement is the issue, we’re trained in the revolutionary SettleStop method, a high-performing alternative to mudjacking. Our professionals will perform a thorough examination of your property so we’re sure to use the right solution for you.
